CDC specializes in development finance, emerging markets investment, private equity fund investing, microfinance and debt finance, and direct investing. It supports businesses throughout the investment cycle.

The sectors it focuses on are financial services, infrastructure, health, manufacturing, food and agriculture, construction and real estate, and education – particularly in those sectors where growth leads to jobs.
